Naarrich manager says it is a freak result for them today and not to panic

A naarich fan on pink un site says we are a small northern club...all a bit similar to what blackburn fans said the other day..

I would say since when was the town of Blackburn and the city of Norwich deemed as big places?

The fact is you are only as good as your opposition lets you be...freakiness does not come into it...

But let the arrogance of these BIG clubs continue because they only make us more determined to beat them - view external link (http://www.teamtalk.com/rotherham-united/9503799/-)

Interesting post this. Blackburn has a population of only 150,000. Both Rotherham and Norwich have a population of 250,000. (Source being Wikipedia). Hailing from Rotherham and a Miller since the 1960s but now living in Norwich I think the difference is the wider catchment area. With the Millers, you don't have to go far - six miles or so - and you are in another clubs fan base area. In Norwich there is absolutely no competition, the area is starved of football clubs and thus crowds of 25,000 weekly therefore a big club. But with Tony Stewart, the NYS, and SE who knows what the future holds!

Was listening to BBC radio Norfolk on way home. No complaints from them about penalty decision just grumbling how they can't seem to score in first half of a game so end up having to always come from behind. Also they can't seem to win at home. Chasing a game sounds very familiar! At least we got a well deserved point from a team that will be there or thereabouts at the end of the season.

Lets hope that changes and we become the bigger club - no reason for a t

Been to the game today, and i thought we were great in terms of the shape of the team and how the players kept to that shape throughout the game. Norwich, top of the league yeh, but no better than us in my eyes, we made them work their socks off for a point, at their place, credit to the lads and SE, let these teams think what they want, that man STEVE EVANS he does what he wants...

The population of Rotherham isn't 250,000. The pop. of the Metropolitan Borough is roughly 250,000, but that includes areas that certainly wouldn't regard themselves as Rotherham -

"The Metropolitan Borough of Rotherham is a metropolitan borough of South Yorkshire, England. It isd after its largest town, Rotherham, but also spans the outlying towns of Maltby, Rawmarsh, Swinton, Wath-upon-Dearne, and also Dinnington and Laughton as well as a suburban and rural element composed of hills, escarpments and broad valleys" (Wikipedia).

Well, league club, yes. But both Maltby and Dinnington have football teams. Dinnington Town are only a couple of levels below the Conference.

True! but i think we're all agreed we should be a bigger club than we are!

if you looked purely at catchment area population Leeds would be the biggest club in the UK... remind me who do we play next?

We are a small Northen club and clearly that will hurt the so called bigger club who can't beat us.

Norwich obviously still think they're in the Prem, still have match ball on the stand for the Ref to pick up :/
